    Yes, because gamblers are going to see math stats on a machine and say, "Wait a minute, I've been throwing perfectly good money away!"

    table games have better odds of winning.

    a few months back I developed a strategy to win big on the roulette wheel table.
    I basically used all 31 $25 poker chips to cover 31 out of the 37 numbers they had on the board. I was betting $775 & winning $875,which was $100 in profit each round. I literally racked up three thousand in profits. the thing with roulette there are 37 numbers on the board counting the zero & double zero. yet when you win the odds are only 1 out of 35.

    then the owners/employees/security got wise to my strategy & tried to cheat the roullete wheel in making me lose. they'd do that a few times & it would take me a hour to get all my lost money back.

    until finally I won 3 times in a row at the same roulette table. then I over heard a chinese computer guy saying something like : "were gonna get this guy & make him lose next spin." needless to say I didn't place any bets & left. I haven't returned there since. I'm happy & satified winninmg three thousand in under a week.

    it was my fault,there were 6 roullette table & I should have kept moving back & forth to each different table to confuse the owners/employees/security guards like I did the other times.

    That'd be an entertaining blow to the one-armed bandit industry.

    No kidding. :lol 

    On the rare occasion I go to a casino, I go there knowing I'm going to lose money. I go just because it's fun. I don't play the tables, I play only slots. I don't need anything telling me the odds of losing, I already know that I will lol. Which is probably why I don't go that often, and I don't bring that much money to spend. Then again, maybe that's the difference between me and serious gamblers. But really, I doubt most gamblers would even pay attention to any odds that are posted. I get the "informing the consumers" bit, but really, who seriously doesn't know that the odds on slot machines are always in the casino's favor? I thought that was sort of a "duh" thing, but maybe not...
